A downgrade?

The first three movies of the series look as if they could of been the prehistoric age of the last 3 out of the 6, the republic soldiers hardly look like the clones, and it looks as if the Baddies took that concept. To me everything went to a downgrade, I know alot of technology was probably lost for the Republic, but still wouldn't you think they would be much more advance?

It is 4,000 years before the time of the movies... Besides, the clones are Kaminoan.

Actually I believe Darth_Krow is talking about the Prequil Trilogy looking more advanced that the Original Trilogy...

It is my understanding that the OT was basically set in a galaxy under the heel of oppression, the Empire, for at least 18-20 years, so things would be a lot less colorful... also our heros of the OT were in a rebel movement, and Rebels of any sort rarely have state-of-the-art equipment to fight with... and the settings in the OT were more of the backwater sort, so they would also lack the luster of the main hubs of the galaxy.

Whereas the PT was set at the decline of the Old Republic, and while everything was fancier and newer looking this was the way the galaxy looked before the republics fall... and how it would look again after the fall of the Empire. The settings of the PT are also at the center or heart of the republic so everything would appear brighter and shinier.

Just my 2 cents!

Its more then that. There was conscious effort made to have things look more spiffy in the prequels. The basic idea, is that the OT takes place in a war-torn galaxy, where one side is trying to focus on intimidation, and stresses functionality over appearance. The other side is a rag-tag group just throwing whatever they can at the enemy, even if it isnt pretty looking. The PT takes place during what has been peace time for very long. Weapons and ships and such don't have to be produced in as great of quantity, dont see as much action, and dont have to perform to such extreme standards, so they can make them look pretty.


Yeah, you'd think the Emperor had come back to life or something.

Maybe the Empire used a "Super Low-FX Ray" that changes everything "kewl" to "uber-bland". Seriously though, the OT could use a facelift.

I hope GL doesn't hear you say that. We're on OT #3 as it is...

*cough*

We need 3D Ewoks, the Falcon to become completely CG, and have Leia be CG and be in the gold bikini the whole time.

Oh yeah, baby.

............................................... Why CGI Leia? ANd if they make even one character look new, they'll have to make EVERY character new, there for ruining Star Wars without Luke as Mark Hamill. Mark, get a son if you don't, and make sure if they do an OT 4, that he can be Luke. Same goes with Carrie Fisher and a daughter, Harrison Ford, etc..

The clone troopers of the Prequal trilogy are the stormtroopers of the Original trilogy. In ep3 we start to see them look more like the stormtroopers than in ep2.

They all look the same - Except for how they have different colors on a few areas of their armour.
